    slipped straight into the ones I wore yesterday.
    They don't smell I guess I don't have smelly feet.

    No, you are just used to the smell other people probably notice it. I change mine twice a day, once in the morning and then when I go to the gym later.

    I get a couple of days out of a pair of socks. Mike doesn't know what the hell is going on.

    Edit: I am outraged! I feel the OP's position is not truly reflected in the poll choices available :mad:

    Twice a day. Sometimes 3 depending on whether or not I go to the Gym before work.

    I never expected that the killer plague that dooms mankind would stem from the hideous breading ground is OCer's unchanged socks. I fight for the future and change at least daily.

    My word, surely you change them daily just to make sure they don't smell?? My feet generally don't smell at all, but I doubt they are particularly clean after a day wearing shoes.

    It depends on the sock.

    Twice a day, after work I take my socks off and put on fresh ones.

    The idea of wearing socks 2 days on the bounce is horrific.

    Daily !

    Thread reminds me of a bit in a Terry Pratchett Discworld book: Rincewind would throw all his socks against the wall and wear whichever ones didn't stick.
